Hair Loss Treatments in Glasgow
Helping You Regain Your Confidence With Hair Restoration
Hair loss is a medical condition with several causes, including genetics. Although androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss among both men and women, it is by no means the only one. Some of the most important non-AGA causes of hair loss are alopecia areata, scarring alopecia, telogen effluvium and triangular alopecia, trichotillomania and scalp infections. These conditions may not be recognised until they are diagnosed by a physician hair restoration specialist, or hair loss doctor.
Dr Bonaros has been treating hair thinning in Scotland for several years and is available for those searching for a hair loss clinic in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and the greater Scotland area. Visit our Glasgow clinic or book a free Zoom consultation to find the right solution for you.
The success of a hair loss treatment is dependent upon the correct diagnosis.
Every patient is unique, and selecting the most appropriate and effective type of hair restoration treatment for you will depend on many factors, including the type and stage of your hair loss, your age, lifestyle, goals, stress levels, and general health. When it comes to finding the right treatments for the restoration or stimulation of new hair growth, these factors can play a big role.
So while there are many treatments for hair loss which can slow the process of thinning hair, there isn’t one cure or treatment that works for everyone. Dr Bonaros will explore your particular circumstances and then discuss the options available, providing advice and ensuring that you have realistic expectations about the results you can expect from each type of treatment.
For patients in the early stages of hair loss, non-surgical treatments such as medication may be good options to minimise and even reverse hair thinning. Any topical product or oral medication may cause side effects or interactions. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns about side effects or want to know if you can take a hair loss medication with other drugs.
Combining surgical treatment and medical therapy will provide long-lasting hair restoration results for patients with more advanced hair loss.
Treatments Available at our Hair Transplant Clinic in Scotland
At our Glasgow hair loss clinic, we are dedicated to providing you with the best services and care on your journey to thicker, fuller hair. These are some of the treatments that can be prescribed at Dr Bonaros’ hair regrowth clinic.
Our hair loss clinic in Glasgow provides some of the best and most advanced techniques for hair restoration surgery for men and women.
Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) is the latest innovation in surgical treatments for hair loss in Glasgow and involves harvesting functioning healthy hair one by one as individual follicular hair grafts. The next step, direct hair implantation (DHI), involves using a sharp hair implanter pen and is our standard implantation technique. The hair follicles are implanted fast and efficiently on the head without the risk of repetitive placement trauma.
Our FUE procedure for hair implants in Glasgow is safe, minimally invasive, and leaves no linear scarring on the back of the head.
Finasteride (Propecia) is approved for the treatment of male pattern baldness. It promotes scalp hair growth and prevents further hair loss in many men who use it.
Finasteride comes in tablet form and is available on prescription only. It is perhaps the most extensively studied medication for male pattern baldness.
This article discusses the use, dosage, mechanism of action and side effects of finasteride.
Minoxidil is an over-the-counter, topical medication available in many different strengths and liquid and foam forms. Minoxidil is a drug that can help men and women suffering from a hair loss condition or looking for ways to regrow their hair. But it does not work for everyone, so it is advised to use it with caution.
Minoxidil is commonly sold under the brand name Regaine/Rogaine, although other popular generic minoxidil brands are just as effective. It may take up to six months before you begin showing results, and it needs to be continued indefinitely to maintain its positive effects because Minoxidil only works for as long as it is used.

A beard transplant is a safe cosmetic procedure that can effectively treat an absent, thin or patchy beard. Beard transplants are a subcategory of facial hair transplantation.
Based on the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) statistics, facial implants (beard and moustache) increased by 121% worldwide from 2014 to 2019.
The basic principles of hair transplantation are the same. During a beard transplant procedure, healthy hair follicles are harvested similarly to a routine hair transplant and then implanted, one follicle at a time, at the right angle to give the highest density and most natural-looking results. Dr Bonaros is a beard hair transplant expert who can help you grow a healthy-looking, fuller beard.
Our Body Hair Transplant (BHT) procedures utilise hairs from the scalp and are designed for people with thin or no hairs at all in the chest, abdomen or pubic area due to genetic predisposition or prior laser removal.
Suitable existing hair is extracted from the scalp, and the hair follicles are then implanted to the desired area in the most natural-looking way possible. As with all of our treatments, this is a procedure that Dr Bonaros performs himself at his trusted hair transplant clinic in Glasgow.
